Description

  •  05/12/2017

The indicator, provided by the World Bank (in the "Doing Business"-database), measures the ease of starting a business in an economy by recording all procedures officially required or commonly done in practice by an entrepreneur to start up and formally operate an industrial or commercial business-as well as the time and cost required to complete these procedures. It also records the paid-in minimum capital that companies must deposit before registration (or within 3 months).

The "ease of starting a business"-index provides an aggregate ranking of all economies (190 economies). A high ranking (close to 1) means that it is easier to start a business.

The "distance to frontier indicator" shows the distance of each economy to the "frontier". The frontier represents the highest performance observed on each of the indicators across all economies. An economy's distance to the frontier is reflected on a scale from 0 to 100, with 0 representing the lowest performance and 100 the frontier.
